Here is a horse poem
The old horse
When we go for a walk down the lane,
The old horse hears us coming.
So he comes to stand and wait
For us by the gate.
When we get out the bread
To feed him,
He bend s his large head
And we reach up
To stroke his nose.
Then, off he goe
And dream again of the days
When he used to pull
The coalman`s cart
And the farmer`s plough
Then, he was as strong as a tractor.
He is too old now
To work any longer,
But in the old days
There was no one stronger.
The end! Thank you for listening!
